Exactly what I needed, you should need this too
Alright I waited a month to write this review, so as to get a feel for the new brakes. I had a scare with a lock up one afternoon, so I decided it was time to get a new set up. I went with the DBA T2 street series rotors and the HAWK HPS pads. I will review both of them together and give the same review for both, as I feel they go hand in hand. No doubt if you have stock brakes, you will feel a huge difference. On hard braking, there is much more feel to the pedal, and I feel pads gripping harder on the rotor with much less vibration and shaking. The one thing I had to relearn a bit, is that I feel this combo wants you to brake a little harder than with normal brakes. This is noticeable when say lightly braking to a stop light. For me the pedal feel for this light braking is the same, but it seems as if the brakes need to have just ever so much more pressure to get them to bite down. But once they do, man your eye balls might just pop out! So in summary, no doubt did they reduce my stopping distance. The initial bite is excelent and there is no squeal at all. The HPS pads throw off just a little less dust than the stock pads I had. They look great under some AM wheels, and are one of the best purchases I've ever made here at AM. You've heard me ramble on now, just go buy them!
